TULSA -- Nearly all customers have had power restored Wednesday in south Tulsa after power outages.

About 116 customers are without power as of 6 p.m., and officials said all customers are expected to have power restored by 7:30 p.m.

Officials said the power outages were caused by two fires. A fire that began after a transformer blew at 71st and Yale has been extinguished.

Another transformer at 5520 East Skelly Drive caught fire and electrical wires are down in the area.

Officials said at 44th and Hudson a static wire fell onto a transmission line, which caused the outage.

Officials said a glitch in an outage tracking system wrongly showed that there were 32,000 outages in Green Country. That number was incorrect, officials said.
